anti theft is on.lock all doors from outside,unlock driver door to reset
Sounds like the alternator and eventually it wont start back up for you
try cleaning the carb. generally when it starts and dies it is a sign of a blocked passage in the carb
change fuel filter
The pathfinder may be running to rich. It could be the 02 senser,air flow senser, or bad gas
There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.
It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.
Check the fuel pump?
The carburetor needs to be cleaned out. It is only getting enough fuel to start it. It doesn't get enough fuel to keep running, so it stalls out.
my suburban wont start
car starts but shut off while driving
Could be a clogged or partially clogged fuel filter, and/or the fuel pump itself. The asker doesn't say whether the car will restart immediately after is stalls or not.
It definitely sounds like a fuel problem, the first thing I would do is change the fuel filter .
the idle jet in the carb is blocked and needs to be cleaned out and reset
Possibly Crankshaft Position sensor
since no one on here helped me I decided I'd throw in a starter. Turns out that was the problem, along with a vacuum leak.
could be distributer module
It is probably the alternator. That is what keeps the battery running to the rest of the vehicle. It is probably the fuel to air mixture or a vacum leak. If you hear a hiss when it is running then its vacum if it just slowly stalls when you don't give it throtle then it is fuel.
Idle Air Control Valve.
It could have something to do with your oxygen/air flow sensor
It has a vacuum leak or the IAC is faulty.
bad fuel pump, you dont have enough pressure to stay alive.
